DAVIE (CBSMiami) – Police are asking parents and children in Davie to be on guard as they search for a man who tried to lure a child into his van.

Police released a sketch of the man a 10-year-old girl said tried to lure her into his van.

“This young girl had a phenomenal memory…..she was able to say exactly what the man looked like,” said Major Dale Engle with Davie Police.

According to detectives, the girl was riding her bike and a van with a man inside approached her.

She said the man offered her $20, which she refused and left.

She described him as Hispanic between 30 and 40-years-old with a beard and short hair.

He’s possibly in an older model blue Dodge Caravan with a dent in the driver’s side door.

Police say it’s a good time to remind your children of stranger danger.

“We’ve taken steps to put additional enforcement in that area and elsewhere. They are carrying a sketch of the man, so our office know who they are looking for,” said Major Engle.

Anyone with information can contact Det. Spiller at (954) 693-8270 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
